    A piece of heaven on earth

    You are the Blessings brings me into a place of peace inside of me. Reading the reflections, the meditations and the blessings reminds me of who I truly am, particularly during times where I feel off-center or in self-judgment.<BR/><BR/>I keep You are the Blessings on my nightstand, and I pick it up and turn to a page for wisdom, guidance, and divine soothing. What especially touches me is John's way of capturing the truth simply and with great love.<BR/><BR/>Thank you John Morton for writing this book and gifting us with a priceless tool to experience the loving, the grace, the joy of Soul.

    Simple Elegant Wisdom

    From the graceful beauty of the cover to the beautiful grace of the words within, this book is a true gift. It glows with simple truths and inspirational messages. Every time I open the book, read a passage, I feel a calm come over me, like the most cleansing of breaths. Wonderful.

    A Beautiful Bedside Book

    This book of lovely and gentle blessings has touched me deeply. I find John Morton to be an ocean of love and mercy in his presentation of who we are as divine beings. I have been touched by John's talks in ways I have no words for, and no matter how many times I hear him speak or read something he has written I am always touched profoundly. His simple, and at a times very humorous ways of presenting information is quite human and clear to the spiritual heart. His gentleness wraps you like a babe in a blanket being cuddled, or floating on that ocean of love and mercy. I love having this book to read before bed, and find it helpful to take in John's powerfully positive messages before falling asleep. I encourage obtaining this fine book for yourself and loved ones. As I have discovered it makes a great gift book for any occasion.

    A Must Have

    John Morton's book, You are the Blessings, has brought me into greater alignment with all of the blessings in my life - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I often read one of the reflections or blessings before I go to sleep, and they remind me that I am truly the blessing. To me, the simplicity of his message combined with the loving in his words lifts me up to a greater knowing of what it means for me to be living love.
